Lode Runner is a platform video game first published by Brøderbund in 1983. Unlike later platformers which rely on precision jumping and movement, levels in Lode Runner are puzzle-oriented. It is one of the first games to include a level editor, a feature that allows players to create their own levels for the game. This feature bolstered the game's popularity, as magazines such as Computer Gaming World held contests to see who could build the best level. The prototype of what later became Lode...

"I've just spent a cheerful hour of my time writing a program on my computer that will tell me instantly what the volume of the mound was. It's a very neat and sexy program with all sorts of pop-up menus and things, and the advantage of doing it the way I have is that on any future occasion on which I need to know the volume of a megapode nest, given its basic dimensions, my computer will give me the answer in less than a second, which is a wonderful saving of time. The downside, I...

A wacky interactive cartoon where you play Sean, a character that seems to continuously find himself in bad situations. Funny stuff. New version includes a way to save the game to a file, a menubar, and other minor bug fixes. Now runs on Hypercard Player. From a forum post: "This is a MacOS 9 emulator (for OSX - so I guess I'm mostly looking at Riff and Hotstuff). It has a few hoops to jump through to get it working. Drag the 'hypercard.sheepvm' onto 'Sheepshaver' to launch Hypercard in...

"Glider has a very simple concept, as many early Mac games did, but it was brilliantly executed and is still enjoyable to play today. I realised yesterday that I love the feel of old games like Glider because you can tell that they made the graphics on a computer not that dissimilar to the one you're playing it on! You can see all the familiar MacPaint patterns in the graphics - check out the 'brick' pattern wearing through the wall (with a bit of the spray-paint tool for good measure) in...

Minesweeper is a single-player puzzle video game . The objective of the game is to clear a rectangular board containing hidden " mines " without detonating any of them, with help from clues about the number of neighboring mines in each field. The game originates from the 1960s, and has been written for many computing platforms in use today. It has many variations and offshoots.

From game author Randy Carr's website (http://www.fatlion.com/nettrek/): NetTrek - Where'd it come from and where'd it go? Way back in 1982, before Warp-Drive, there was this secret new computer being developed at Apple Computer known as the ' Lisa '. The Lisa computer had a real bitmapped screen that was fairly large (i.e. lots of pixels!) and a real pointing device that resembled what Xerox had done in the late '70's, known as the 'mouse'. I was working at Apple Computer in those days, so I...

MacWeek was an astonishingly accomplished early Macintosh e-zine. And I'm not kidding when I say "early"; issue 1 was published in November 1986! Published in μFilm (pronounced microfilm) format, MacWeek was the work of Jerry Daniels and his wife. Information about the publication is scarce on the web, and somewhat drowned out by search matches for the later (unrelated other than that the name was purchased from Mr Daniels) print publication MacWEEK, but I quote from an article at...
